You may recall from past issues of the Compendium that we have expressed our concern that the number of designated doctors in the workers’ compensation system continues to decline. In the September 2021 issue we reported that the number of designated doctors in the system had dropped to a total of 272, only 75 of which were physicians.

DWC has announced another presentation concerning proposed changes to the designated doctor program which will allow system participants to discuss the second informal proposal on amendments to 28 Texas Administrative Code Chapter 127 and 28 Texas Administrative Code §180.23. 

The presentation will be held via Zoom on June 7, 2022 from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. Slides will be posted on the TDI website on the day of the presentation. The informal proposal together with associated documents will be posted on June 1, 2022 on the TDI website.
